The 2015 NFL season kicks off the road to Super Bowl 50 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. on September 10; and at that very moment, nearly 900 kilometres away, Canadian football fans will be revelling in watching their favourite players’ at the first of eight NFL Canada Thursday Night Football events taking place across the country.

Running from September 10 to December 3, the Bud Light-sponsored 2015 #NFLCanada Tour will feature appearances from NFL alumni and cheerleaders, beginning with Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl-winner, and recent Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, Jerome “The Bus” Bettis, who will be in attendance at the Toronto event.
